“The Grand Canyon of Pennslyvania”
Pine Creek Gorge, commonly referred to as the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania is surrounded by approximately 165,000 acres of the Tioga State Forest. The Canyon begins south of Ansonia along US Route 6 and continues for approximately 47 miles. The maximum depth of the canyon is 1,450 feet at Waterville, near the southern end. At Leonard Harrison and Colton Point State Parks, the depth is more than 800 feet. These overlooks offer the most spectacular views. Pine Creek Gorge received national acclaim in 1968 when the National Park Service designated a 12-mile section as a National Natural Landmark.Hiking the Turkey Path from Leonard Harrison State Park will wind you past waterfalls and areas of beautiful scenery. The Trail steeply descends one mile to the Canyon floor. The Overlook Trail, a .6-mile loop, offers a scenic vista along the way. Picnic areas, playground, a seasonal, visitor center and gift shop are also available for your enjoyment.
We only did the Overlook trail this trip. some of the trees could use a little pruning to get better scenic pictures, this is definitely a "Fall Color Change" stop.
